Facelifts on men

I'm only 36, so it's not something I'd even be considering for at least a couple of decades, but for some reason I fell into a rabbit hole this morning looking at galleries of mini facelift results, and was surprised at how much more natural they look now than decades ago. I can't think of any male entertainers that have gotten facelifts that didn't end up looking absolutely ridiculous, but maybe it's just bad facelifts are the only ones we notice?

Are there any male celebrities you can think of that you're almost positive have gotten a good one? Have you had one, and if so, do you think it was worth it?

I had a facelift and neck lipo about 12 years ago. It was subtle; not Joan Rivers shit. No one notices but people do remark that I look young for my age. I’m happy with it but I do not look (or pretend to look) 10 years younger.

Was Kenny’s unfortunate result from a facelift?

I remember when Kenny was on The Diane Rehm Show, Diane asked him what was up with his eyes, and he said the surgeon got them too tight. He said he wasn’t happy with the outcome. I felt bad for him. Then he died!

I’d like a mini-neck lift myself. Anyone here have one?

I think they can be iffy for men. Just make sure you get a good doctor and review photos of previous work.

Your point is poorly written, but are you saying you think in general facelifts on women have gotten much more natural looking, but not on men? In my opinion, the truth is that some facelifts looks awful and some look good, but it has nothing to do with whether the subject is male or female.

Would you consider this an example of a bad facelift? The guy was 71. I don't know, I feel like I can tell he's had a facelift, so that means it's bad, right?

I think it's a bad facelift, because you can totally tell. A good facelift, the person looks like he had a good night's rest or just returned from a relaxing vacation.

by Anonymousreply 6March 14, 2024 4:30 PM

Judging from the photos at R5, it might be obvious to me that the guy had a facelift if I were told he's 71, but if I didn't know that, I would say his face looks natural and I would guess his age as somewhere in his 50s or maybe around 60.

by Anonymousreply 7March 14, 2024 4:34 PM

R4 I was talking about women, but that's only because I really couldn't find a ton of good male examples. All of the ones I did find, the men were 70+ years old, so it's harder to tell if it's a "good" facelift or not. But we know that these, days actresses are getting facelifts younger and younger so that there's no radical/obvious change in photos. I was wondering if male celebrities in their 40's/early 50's might be doing the same.

by Anonymousreply 8March 14, 2024 4:34 PM

Here's another example. Again, I have no idea if this is a good facelift. I guess I would have to agree he looks younger, but I can't say he looks BETTER. It seems like it's so easy for them to be just a little too feminizing on men.

Now THIS one seems like an example of really good work. Age 59. The guy not only looks younger, but genuinely better. What gets me is that these are all from the same doctor. So maybe it really is just luck of the draw/genes that determine how well your face will take to surgery.

The guy at R5 looks better, IMO. But his fucking eyebrows, mustache, and one earring. Trim the eyebrows, shave the mustache, and take out the earring.

The guy at R9 looks better, as well. However, he also got a pretty aggressive eye lift (which is separate from a face lift). Agree that he needs to groom himself. He looks like he could use a hot shower and a loofah sponge.

Men should never have knife surgery.

Men should have, starting in the 30s, TREATMENTS.

I had full facial Thermage, with extra zaps on the jowl area and lower lid laser blepharoplasty when I was 40.

Interesting thing:

During the laser lid lift, my resurfacing surgeon said she got done early but had more time on the laser, and she asked if there was any other place I wanted to be tightened. In doing research for my eyes, I found that it is not the actual wrinkles or sags that are aging, but how the face ages and how those wrinkles and sags are perceived. In particular, the sag and drag marks, which are the first to be sliced on a full facelift, are the most aging. The lines that make your face appear to be melting from the ears. I asked her to remove my face sag lines and the ladder between my eyes (the Botox lines). I will never forget her saying, as she was resurfacing the drag lines, that she never imagined how deep the lines went. But they WENT!

I am 67 now, and the collagen that the surgeon stimulated on the ear sag lines removal has been wonderful, as I still do not have face drag lines and do not give off subliminal signals for how old my face is.

Start youngish, do maintenance.

My one major issue with facelifts and other invasive procedures for men is how rarely there are any good examples. Celebrities can somehow go crazy but on the other hand they have the money and knowledge to do it right, so if it goes wrong for them. Just last Monday i was looking at Ryan Gosling at the Oscars and wondering if he wouldn’t look better without that plastic look (sort of in character right now). David Beckham appeared recently almost unrecognizable.

So yes, i would be very afraid to go that way.

I know that some guys have a form of laser resurfacing. It’s called an ablative laser, and it burns off your outer layer of skin and stimulates collagen to form in the layer below. But your face looks like hamburger after and the resulting skin is really sensitive to even moderate sunlight.

My colleague had this procedure done, and wore a tinted sunscreen after. So his face was generally smooth, but had a doll-like appearance, and the pink sunscreen looked like makeup.

I can’t see doing that if you’re fair skinned like me. Also your skin gets thinner as you age, possibly due to hormonal changes.

R95, I’m not a skin expert, but I have vitiligo, the same autoimmune condition MJ had.

Vitiligo happens when the immune system mistakenly kills melanocytes, the cells that give skin pigment, leaving random patches of skin that look as though they’d been bleached.

It can be distressing to someone who has it, as it obviously changes one’s appearance, particularly if the face is affected. When more than half the body is affected, sometimes people choose to have their remaining skin depigmented using some type of chemicals from/at their doctor. While depigmented skin doesn’t look natural, it doesn’t have the startling contrast of vitiligo. Depigmentation is permanent when completed.

That’s what Michael Jackson did— he had vitiligo that caused his skin to lose pigment in random patches. Naturally he panicked. Nowhere near 50% of his skin was affected, but being a public figure, he opted to have his skin completely depigmented. The color would never have come back. However, if it did, he’d still have vitiligo.

There’s no cure for vitiligo or other autoimmune conditions, just treatments. For a long time there hadn’t been a very effective treatment for it, but last year they came out with a cream that works pretty well. I’ve been using it for four months or so and the vitiligo on my face is starting to repigment.

R104 thank you for your reply. I hope this new cream you are using does work.

r104, I also come from an Italian family where vitiligo runs rampant. I have many tortoise shelled uncles and cousins.

My mom had little patches of dark skin, but they were in places where it only limited her bathing suit choices.

Until menopause.

Those melanocyte killers went into overdrive and ate up ALL of my mom's melanin.

My mom went from her "normal" coloring to not having a patch of color.

All of her freckles disappeared, and she went white, not gray, haired. She had the skin of a pink lab rat.

I was told it was part of a genetic immune disease CLUSTER that runs through our family as to the metabolism of Iodine and Thyroid hormones.

R105 funny you choose a picture that is labelled "hotter before" to illustrate the exact opposite. I guess you like plastic doll looks. Good for you!

I just saw Kelly Clarkson's show with Richard Marx and Rick Springfield. That would be two examples of bad facelifts on men. Holy shit they looked like two lesbians,.

Springfield has looked bad, as far as facelifts, for years.

r103, also a very bad nose job and hair transplants. So weird that he has had more plastic surgery than a lot of women.

I worked with MJ pretty much right before he died, and he definitely had vitiligo- his nail beds were white as snow- there is no way you could bleach nail beds white.

Al Pacino had a bad facelift and eye job.

R132 what did Michael Jackson really look like close up? I know there was that german doctor who eventually managed to fix his nose by taking cartilage from his ear. Was it a real shock to see him the first time, given how odd he looked.

R132 please do answer R134. I really want to know, too.

by Anonymousreply 135March 20, 2024 1:37 PM

Very frail, thin (his legs were the size of my arms), ghostly white (I've seen black/asian/white people with bad vitiligo and he definitely matches them). We weren't supposed to talk to him, but he was friendly. I didn't get that close to him, so it was hard to say if he had the grafted nose, but I do know that he did use to wear a prosthetic nose all the time- people in my industry confirm this). He was very childlike in behavior, and when his kids visited one day, was very engaging with them. When he wasn't rehearsing, he looked like he couldn't walk across the room, but when rehearsing, he became Michael Jackson. Production had to hide the stunts from him, because he would insist on doing them. We actually had to lighten up his stunt double, who was a white guy, while MJ's makeup artist darkened him.

But even watching, "Michael Jackson" you knew that there was no way he could sustain a 3 month tour. The dancers were slavishly devoted to him, and Orianthi (sp) was and is a badass. One of my co-workers secretly recorded a lot of the rehearsals, Sony found out later after he died, and instead of penalizing her (no photos or videos), they paid her off because it was an alternative bonus material that they could utilize in the future.

We did 5 or 6 videos for his tour, and they were all supposed to be in 3D, which the only one you'll see is the Thriller in This Is It.

I just saw a recent video of Martin Yan (Yan Can Cook). He has had a face and eye lift. Plus dyed hair. However, he looks good, not overly feminized. The only negative was that his sideburns areas had no hair. His hairline on the sides was pulled back as well.

However, lorry hill the youtuber had a mid-face lift and said that she was going to get hair transplants on her sideburns areas.

by Anonymousreply 138March 20, 2024 8:16 PM

R138 Yeah, that's always the surest giveaway. Even though the scars are much less noticeable with modern facelifts and they stopped with the pixie ears, there's really no other explanation for the suddenly hairless sideburns. That's not an area that's naturally affected by any form of hairloss.

That neck lift cleaned up his jowls and everything.

That's going to be the first procedure I have done. I caught a glimpse of my neck in the mirror yesterday as I was turning my head, and happened to see myself at an angle I never usually see. It looked downright scrotal!

I believe there are these injections that can get rid of your neck fat. not sure if they work but the are not cheap!

Kybella, R153?

I think that only works if it's just fat that's your problem. But it won't do anything for the loose skin/crepiness. Maybe if you coupled Kybella with a Co2 laser session or two. But at that point, you'd be spending almost as much as you would for a neck lift.

Eye jobs work well for women but often go really wrong on men's faces for some reason. Mario Lopez fucked his face up like that. The eye jobs look so out of place on an a man's face. I would stick to neck and jowl work but never ever get my eyes done.
